Paranormal happenings across globe are baffling the mankind for times immemorial. Paranormal events, termed as “psi” are being studied under Parapsychology. Parapsychology is still not accepted as science and Parapsychological researchers are researching to get it its rightful place in mainstream science. This article tries to give details of the reasons which are preventing this field from being recognized by scientific fraternity as a mainstream science subject. The impediments are gigantic but since the frequency of paranormal happenings are so large in numbers and are happening across the world, we just cannot brush these aside as non- sensical. There has to be scientific reasons, which, we are not in a position to figure out currently. May be that the physical sciences have not advanced to a state whereby these events can be explained using the known scientific means. As we all know, brain is still not fully explored, majority portion of our brain is still not known to our medical sciences and medical research is going on to understand the mysteries lying in these unexplored reasons of brain. We are, also, not having full understanding of “Consciousness”,i.e what causes it and how consciousness makes us aware of world around us. Research in this field will also help in answering many paranormal secrets, including the reasons for possibility of life after death. There is a need for collaborative research in which parapsychologists, neuroscientists and medical researchers join together and take the research forward to help the mankind.
